obama might southern to another close ally for the chief of staff. >>> it was a pretty tame going away party for treasury secretary tim geithner yesterday. >> they didn't serve any alcohol. >> the president told reporters, they're still on a bublt. and if you read only one thing this morning, we have all heard about surgeries gone wrong. sometimes we actually see proof on the faces of celebrities. but my must read is about a surgical mistake that is so off the charts you have to read it to believe it. it's up on our facebook page at facebook/jansingco. on every purchase, every day! helium delivery. put it on my spark card!

. republican party. they're in deep trouble. they've got some challenges. [laughter] msnbc, power point of the obama administration. a very colorful. [laughter] they got colorful faces on there now. i'm a christian and i love everyone pretty you know that, father. people got upset i call the president the black mascot of wall street oligarchs. i'm a christian, i love mascots. [laughter] but when you bailout banks not to the tune of $16 trillion but refused to bail out homeowners or when you bailout your workers, you can brag about bailing out your workers, but how come they have to change their contracts and deal with low wages and layoffs, but wall street didn't? the compensation for executives continues to be obscene and profane and nobody could raise a mumbling word in the corporate truncated multiplex. thank god for amy goodman and tavis smiley on television. that is true.

. >>> president obama admits his new push for sweeping gun control will be a tough fight. the lines are being drawn today. where the -- steve? >> that's right. both parties could be unified in this one, jim, on both sides. the key to a win, though, in this fight over guns seems to be the middle. democrats from states where guns are popular. delmarva, western maryland, west virginia, west virginia, those lawmakers are getting pressure from both sides. the vice president kicked off the public biden/obama campaign for universal background checks and a ban on assault weapons. >> newtown has shocked the nation. the carnage on our streets is no longer able to be ignored. >> that's why we need a national approach. >> but key congressional democrats could oppose the is that. democratic laterer harry reid, who voted against 91994 assault weapons ban, said a new one can't pass congress. west virginia democratic senator joe manchin, after newtown, questioned the right to own assault weapons. now manchin says he's disappointed that the president did not recommend the creation of the national commission o
guns. the american people want us to be very carb just what we do. >> reporter: president obama knows he needs to win over members of his own party before he can target his own party. >>> an unusual proposal to regulate assault weapons in san jose is getting mixed reviews. a lawyer in san jose drafted and ordinance and presented it at a city council committee meeting yesterday. it calls for anyone in san jose who wants to own an assault weapon to be required to pass a mental health check and then turn the weapon over to police for safe keeping. if owners want to check out their weapons, they would have to say why. >>> san jose mayor chuck reed said he's not hour it's a good idea for cities to make their own gun laws while the president is taking this on as a federal -- at a federal level. >>> san jose police may use gps to stop pharmacy robberies. thieves are trying to steal oxy contone and other pills. earlier this week, two san francisco drugstores were robbed. last month, a walgreen's in palo alto was robbed. pharmacies in new york are already planting gps devices inside a fake dru
. this is the thing that politicians of both parties do. the president bringing in people to attend the "state of the union" address. in this case, president obama wants to people serve as human symbols of the policies as you mentioned. a woman who got treatment for a disease she couldn't have gotten without obamacare and woman who lost her job at g.m. and got it back. woman whose child goes to college due to pem grant. the problem with gimmicks they inspire counter gimmicks. i wouldn't be surprised if the republicans wanted to feature taxpayer that lost money in solyndra, or person whose insurance premiums went up because of obamacare or member of the millions of the people unemployed. the unemployment rate is 7.8% this january. precisely the same number it was four years ago when president obama was inaugurated the first time. >> neil: what if the co-chairs or whatever they call them, what do they do at the inauguration and how are they showcased or featured, or whatever? >> guest: well, the president's staff will put them in a prom mant place an tell the stories. they want to get the storie
, you're whining about it and that's a sign of a losing political party. >> megyn: go ahead, mark. >> i'm not whining about anything, unlike his immediate predecessors, barack obama is not interested in bipartisan. compare him to george bush and bill clinton. george bush reached across the aisle with ted kennedy for the the no child left behind and bill clinton reached out to republicans and worked with them to pass the north american free trade agreement over objection of majority of democrats. where are barack obama's bipartisan achievement and legislatures he passed working with republicans against democrats? not a single issue he stakes a claim against his own party for the good of the country. his model is stimulus, and obamacare where he maximizes his position and rams it through as best he can and look, it's worked for him. he won, got both of those bills through and he won reelection and i see no sign whatsoever he's going to become the post partisan president in the second term that he promised to be in his first and never was. >> megyn: the question is though, simon, whether a
of two persons of interest. >>> president obama plans to go on the road to galvanize public support for his new gun control proposal. >> but the president admits it could be a tough sell, even within his own party. harry reid voted against the 1994 assault weapons ban that has since expired. he says he doesn't believe a new ban will pass congress. meanwhile, they're claiming it's a back-door way of creating a national gun rental city. >>> a just released survey of teachers in fairfax county finds a majority believe there should not be guns? school. they support an armed police officers in schools rather than other ops like armed security guard or school staff. 27% feels school facilities are safe and security, that online surveys of 433 teachers was conducted by the fairfax county federation of teachers. >>> meanwhile, at this hour, in rich more they are debating the very issue. a controversial vote is being on right now. julie caries says it's one of several gun bills to be considered by lawmakers. itches this is an ak-47. >> democratic lawmakers brought a powerful-looking prop to
cut debt, and no gun-control. it appears to be a fight for the very soul of the republican party. the nra calls the president and its lead is typical. the president calls the nra cowardly. why does this argument matter? the "a-team" will be here to talk about the obama rule and why it matters a great deal. the interior secretary said to ride off into the sunset, but he leaves a luxurious legacy of government waste. ken salazar opulent washington legacy next. president obama dividing america again, this time over gun ownership and the second amendment. we will take it up in the form with a pro-gun advocate and the mother of a victim of the virginia tech shooting next. lou: president obama today signed 23 executive actions on gun-control. we are joined now by the director of communications for gun owners of america and the viejo organizer of the coalition to stop gun violence. her daughter was shot twice during the 2007 virginia tech massacre, and she survived. thank you both for being with us. i am going to begin, if i may, with you and your reaction to the president's actions tod
out and said it's prepared to do the battle of the century. barack obama and joe biden and their gun allies only want to blame you, vilify you and strip you of your second amendment freedoms. these lines are pretty clear here. is in where the republican party wants to go? >> no, and it's certainly not the party that i want to be a part of in the future. that's where the party is going. i think that, you know, what the president has laid out is a common sense position to start with. a lot of the things the president has talked about in his 23 points today, are things that the nra has supported in the past. let's be opposed to it and sit down and get something done. >> michael, you're like a minority of one. i'm waiting for others to come out who are still elected representatives of the party. one, to say hey, let's have a real conversation here and not just hide behind the nra and its rhetoric of fear. >> michael, do you think there are any republicans that will vote for any of the proposals that were put on the table today. >> i do. and i'll tell you why. it's the numb befrs that you

's the traditional path to the presidency. are we doing something wrong in the democratic party to set women up to really be able to take that step and break that ultimate glass ceiling? >> look. i think we -- president obama showed you don't have to be a governor to get to the president and we have a deep bench if hillary doesn't run and i pray that she does. look, some of the women with senator gillibrand, you know, talking about this a lot. stop saying that women aren't ready because we are and there is a deep, deep bench of women who are just waiting to lead. >> well, yeah, on that point, i would bet good money you won't have an all-white male democratic field in 2016 even if hillary didn't run. people around amy klobashar has ambitions. it seems to me there's a fundamental change here looking at the woman running for president before up until hillary in 2008, a lot of candidacies symbolic, sort of started and pulled back and now i think it's a new era and standard on the democratic side and i believe the republican side, too. you can put kelly aotte's aim out there. one woman will be in th
-- this is always -- there's always attention. >> obama was on their -- how many months in a row was obama on the cover of the nra magazine in the past two years? ten of 12 months. >> i'm not a subscriber myself, but it's good for them. maybe bad for their party. i'm not sure how bad it is for their issue. again, i think that, like, they've sort of given up on the background checks. they're going to go out, and i don't think that anyone realistically thinks they're going to avoid that. on the kind of marginal issues, i think that what they believe and i think they're correct is that they've got enough people in each state that is going to be very hard for the middle ground democratic senators to come out and do kind of really hard core. >> if it's good for business on the right, though, it is also, to glen's point, political capital for the president. it's also worth noting the brady campaign has gotten $5 million since newtown, which is a doubling of their budget. i mean, they have increased their membership by 100,000. i mean, that is not traditionally been the case after the shootings.
development for our economy. the first point i want to make, when the two parties can get together on some of these issues this and that things can happen. with respect to poverty specifically, i think it is a well-kept secret of mitt romney and barack obama advocated indexing the minimum wage to the rate of inflation. it does not matter now, because we have no inflation, but if the economy gets better and we do not index the minimum wage to inflation people at the bottom of the income spectrum are going to lose ground rather than gain ground in the recovery that is a modest sensible thing we should all agree on. >> that is pretty good for 18. a dean. i'll give you all the leeway you need to do that. i wonder if you can help me imagine what a white house conference to eradicate poverty with the left and right present to talk about ideas that could work if they could agree on -- give me a sense of at this moment what some of the ideas on the table might be that could get this moving, and you can respond to what you wanted to earlier. >> part of the challenges that most of the experts who su
